Assuming 10.5.x.

Open System Preferences and select Sharing. Then check File Sharing and add the files and folders you want to share and what permissions you want for the user(s) that you want to access these files and folders. Then go to your Windows machine and do something like Start -> Run and in the open box put \\<Mac IP Address>  or \\<Mac name>, or \\<Mac IP Address>\sharename.  Or you should also be able to map a drive to the Mac as well.
